Mirror, mirror, on the the wall
Show me the future of us all

This is one of the hundreds of sketches I did during my last semester at college. I will be slowly posting the ones I like (and the rest in batches) through out the next few months :)

For all those complaining that this idea has been done before, yes, I know. This type of drawing actually has a genre called Memento Mori. It means things that reminds us of our mortality/death.

Other works:

Drawn on paper with pencil, color added in Photoshop

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on a monday night at 12:00a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you and watching you bleed to death.
Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if u copy and paste this to ten comments in the next ten minutes u will have the best day of ur life tomorrow. u will either get kissed or asked out, if u break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your room tonight. in 53 mins someone will say i love you or im sorry

Good sketch this one. Every time we look in the mirror, we are older than the last time we looked...........if we stop looking, will it make a difference?
